with this. the first family is on vacation in martha's vineyard. this is their fourth vacation trip to the island. they skipped last year in the midst of the 2012 campaign. the president, he hit the links with the press pool watching both yesterday and today. i notice that this morning drudge was leading with a story that talked about the arrival of bo, the family dog via an osprey helicopter, the number of hotel rooms needed for secret service, and the presence of a mesh bag filled with basketballs in the luggage. criticizing a president's vacation, especially this president's vacation has become a rite of summer. to learn more of the facts, today i chatted with mark knoller. he is the white house correspondent for cbs news, but he is more than that. he is the go-to statistician for presidential behavior, and he often shares his data with colleagues, sometimes with the presidents themselves. he maintains lists of literally everything the commander in chief does, from bill signings to pardons, vetoes, air force one flights, marine one trips and vacation destinations, even church att

vacation on martha's vineyard, spoke on thursday. this is part of what he said. >> we've sustained our commitment to egypt and its people, but while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. >> so, ratchets up the pressure, senator ayotte, but is the president more or less on the sidelines or do you think he's been doing the right thing? >> well, i agreed with his suspension of the military exercise, obviously, his condemnation of the violence, but i think he fell short when he really didn't come out and call out the real question on the suspension of aid, because that is the real influence that we have with egypt. so i thought that he could have been stronger on that coming very clearly against the violence and saying we're going to suspend aid until you restore democracy. >> so, the question for me, senator reed, is what is it that the united states really wants to stand up for right now? i go back to the mubarak, at the end of the mubarak era in
